Recurring guest stars on the new season include: Clea DuVall as Marjorie, Catherine's girlfriend; Margaret Colin as Jane McCabe; Patton Oswalt as Teddy Sykes; and Brian Huskey as Leon West, Selina's spokesman.

The new season of 'Veep' finds Selina Meyer trying to gain traction in early primary states, wooing uber-wealthy donors while navigating threats from primary challengers, including aide-turned-congressman Jonah Ryan. Selina's band of misfits is also back, except for Mike, who's been banished from her orbit and is now covering the presidential campaign, having been replaced by his ongoing nemesis in the press, reporter Leon West.

Meanwhile, Amy is figuring out how she feels about her pregnancy vis-a-vis Dan, who seems unwilling to give up his playboy ways for fatherhood. Rounding out the team are ever-faithful bagman Gary, cantankerous Ben, numbers-obsessed Kent and staffer Richard.

Production was delayed on the final season after Louis-Dreyfus revealed she had breast cancer in 2017. She underwent treatment and completed it successfully and the final season ended up wrapping production in December 2018.
